A Cure in Sight is joined by Dr. Scott Walter for a discussion on the importance of biopsies, and how they are being used in the field to diagnose ocular melanoma early on, as well as provide information for how patients should proceed after treatment with scan protocols.
He explains the process of the biopsy, the risks involved, and what he does to ensure minimal risk in the procedure, as well as the importance of the biopsy in diagnostic information to treat the tumor initially, or to proceed with follow up patient care.
Tune in now!

Thanks for listening--be sure to share in your OM communities, and with your ocular oncologist and retina specialists so they have a good reference point for sharing information on biopsies with patients!
